“Really well done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Really well arranged, well informed museum. Didn't shy away from the reality of what Jackson was really like, his flaws and all.

“Very informative and beautifully presented”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Our recent visit to the Hermitage was outstanding. The combination of a guided tour + an audio tour was well done - allowed an up close and personal tour with guides in the house and a self guided audio tour throughout the grounds giving us the opportunity to move at our own pace without a large crowd. We spent 3 - 4 hours here. Very infromattive about Jackson, his family and the contradictory lives of the enslaved community there. Well worth the price of admission - don't forget to show your AAA card for a discount.

“Wear comfortable shoes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

I came for a visit in the summer and it was hot...bring bottle water because once you start walking you will get thirsty. Wear comfortable shoes because its also a long walking tour

“The Hermitage”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Interesting to see Jackson's house. Tour guides were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, it was pouring rain so we did not get to really walk around the grounds. Not as awe-inspiring as Monticello, but still an interesting historical visit.
